In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. Unless the border bill says “Shut It” than it’s a waste of votes. What happened to the money to build the fence back in the 80’s when Reagan passed his amnesty bill? Why do we keep compromising with the dems only to be double crossed over and over again?

  2. This bill is going nowhere and the GOP leadership knows it. As legislators though, they must legislate. The Senate will never concur with this bill and there is no time to negotiate so nothing is going to get done.

    Which is, from a political standpoint, what should happen.

    Obama is going to use Executive Orders to create policy (law) and this all may end up in the Supreme Court or maybe even the fulfillment of Sarah Palin’s call for a Senate trial.

  3. Shutdown babies:
    This happened in 2013, not 1953. Asking the public to believe that during their two days off because of the sequestration, the idle employees decided to cavort like bunnies who had never heard of or used contraceptives is ridiculous.
    Who writes this stupid stuff, and worse, who believes this?

  4. This was a nation of laws not men.
    Every decision on immigration by Obama is a political one not one with the duly passed and president signed law in mind.

    To use the border as a political tool is maybe one of the worst offenses so far from Obama against America and it people.

    this goes beyond impeachable offenses into CRIMINAL ones.

      1. It is treason. And it is treason for the President to give money to terrorist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. When will he be prosecuted?

  5. It seems to me that the insolvency of Medicare and Social Security have an inverse relationship to all of the governmental programs Obama has initiated including the latest of aiding and abetting an illegal invasion of the United States. Of course, I don’t have any facts as that prick Bill O’Reilly would suggest, but how is a nobody like me in flyover country supposed to ever get at the facts? It’s just an attempt to be logical.

      1. And the logic would be…spend more in immigrants, the sooner SS goes broke? I am not getting that one… (As for your ref to O’Reilly, I don’t have the energy today–please reprimand yourself.

        1. What don’t you get about shell games? You have a limited amount which you shuffle around. It doesn’t grow on trees you know.

  6. Obama to meet with more letter writers……..

    Really? How much money is being pissed away with this campaign stunt? If a President wanted to meet someone or appear on their TV show they would invite or host them at the WH. In fact, it used to be a huge deal to get a phone call from the President. This President and his Three Ring Circus travels to them.

    Has anyone reporter done a background of the four people having dinner with the Prez? I bet all of them have ties with a Democratic Senator, Congressmember or DNC member.

    Nothing is real or substantive with this administration.

    1. Obama could just as easily SKYPE with these “folks” who write him.But then darn, the Democratic party would have to fund his AF1 trips for fundraising. Funny how that works.

      I bet if I wrote him, he wouldn’t choose ME to sit down for a burger!! :-) The sad thing about Obama’s administration, one of the many many, is that I don’t feel I could ever write a letter to the President sharing my disappointment, for fear of reprisal – IRS audits, phone tapping.
